Pigment Yellow 83

Similar to Clariant HR02

Pigment Yellow 83 is a reddish shade yellow bis-azo pigments. It has bright color, good heat resistance, satisfactory light fastness, and good solvent resistance. Pigment Yellow 74 is suitable for the coloring of water-based coating and solvent coatings. In alkyd paint, the light fastness of Pigment Yellow 83 can reach 6-7 and the weather resistance is excellent . In the baking paint, Pigment Yellow 83 also has better heat-resistance than other benzidine yellow pigments. It is stable in plastics without migration and are applied in EVA,PVC, TPR,PP and PE.

Product Details


Pigment Yellow 83 is reddish yellow powder. It has excellent migration ability and is not easy to have color penetration.It also has good heat resistance and is stable around 200℃. It is easy to be dispersed, and performance is stable in paint, plastic and ink. It has good solvent resistance,such as in ethanol, and acetate etc, and its performance is good in both acid and alkali condition.The light fastness of PY83 is 6-7 and is excellent among azo pigments.
